Sarah Palin and Donald Trump Prove Their Ignorance of the US Constitution


Donald Trump has repeatedly accused the media of “fake news.”  He has taken the position that his attempt to ban Muslim immigrants was not an attempt to ban Muslim immigrants.  Sarah Palin has famously declared that she would “baptize” people SHE PERCEIVES to be terrorists by torturing them.  It never occurred to her that there was a fundamental problem with anyone determining that someone was a terrorist.  For example, if Donald Trump followed her recommendations, and determined that the Pope were a terrorist, Trump could then waterboard him because Trump “thought” the Pope was a terrorist.

Remember the Pope suggested Trump wasn’t Christian.  Pope said of Trump:

“A person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Trump retaliated against the Pope saying:

 it is “disgraceful” for the Catholic leader to question his faith and calling the pontiff “a pawn” for the Mexican government.

“No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith,”

Now Sarah has posted this picture to her Facebook:

The immediate question you should ask yourself is “Does Sarah Palin still think Barack Obama is the President?”

The next question should be, “Does Sarah even know who John Adams was?”

The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
—John Adams

The next question might be, “Has Sarah ever read the First Amendment to the Constitution?”

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The next question should be, “Does Palin know who Thomas Jefferson was?”  He wrote a letter to John Adams explaining:

“The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. … But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding….”

These are not the words of a man who wishes to establish a Christian theocracy.

Our founding fathers explicitly and clearly excluded any reference to “God” or “the Almighty” or any euphemism for a higher power in the Constitution. Not one time is the word “god” mentioned in our founding document. Not one time.

Our nation includes 5-6 million Jews.   There are millions of Muslims in America. There are a substantial number of people in America of the  Bahá’í faith.  America is made up of Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Taiosts, and a variety of lesser known religions.  There are also many Americans who are agnostics, atheists, or humanists.  

It is contrary to the Founding Fathers, the US Constitution, and the reality of America to say that we are a Christian Nation.

  1. The first amendment is not an unlimited right. The courts have ruled n 1919 in Schenck v. United States one cannot engage in dangerous speech. As well, the freedom of religion is not an unlimited right.

    This article begs the question does the Pope conflict with the Constitution? Based on Jefferson’s ideology does the mistical religion he represents conflict with the enlightenment of reason expressed in the Constitution.

  2. From day one that she entered the national stage, Malia, not only did I know that she had no clue of the Constitution and what it says, but most likely couldn’t remember her own phone number, and I’m playing nice today.

  3. I did not understand her language on day one and I don’t now. The woman is a complete mental mess along with her boss, a complete mental mess. How on earth does she look at her children and grandchildren and say this is real and fact? How does she justify her lies and ignorance? Just like first lady Kelly annie Conway and the Easter bunny does? Alternative reality BS?

  4. Poor Sarah and maybe trumpy too were brainwashed as children and told not to believe in the United States Constitution. They were taught to fight and lie to the end of times. The similar behavior between them is cause to wonder who taught them, who brainwashed them who allowed it to continue into adulthood. And both have now taught their children the same. Lie Cheat Steal repeat.

  5. Malia, you left out a critical religious order, Rastafarians. My Jamaican friends are not alarmed. They say “Jah be praised. President smokes some powerful herb before he texts.”
